While checking custom pattern libraries in release version 188.8.131.52
that were modified using the v4Betas, I have been noticing the following oddities...
The [ ]Use Pattern's Standard Pad Properties
option that I enabled for the appropriate pads of all qualifying patterns has been mysteriously disabled. Fortunately for me, the appropriate pads did not change from their previous settings so no real crisis there.
Re-enabling the [x]Use Pattern's Standard Pad Properties
option for the appropriate pads of all qualifying patterns (a tedious job when doing this for large libraries where not all pads are standard) causes the Paste Mask
outline to vanish.
Checking the Standard Pad Mask/Paste
settings (main menu
> Standard Pad Mask Paste...
) reveals that the [x]Custom Paste Mask Shrink
option has been mysteriously enabled with the default setting "0
". This is causing the Paste Mask
outline to become the same size as the pad outline and explains the aforementioned Paste Mask
I have tried editing the exported DipTrace ASCII file to disable the [ ]Custom Paste Mask Shrink
option en masse, but have thus far been unsuccessful in seeing a change after setting CustomShrink
" back to "-1000
"; assuming of course that "-1000
" is what creates the disabled state. I have also tried the same thing with the CustomShrink_New
setting with a similar lack of success. Am I overlooking some special line in the DipTrace ASCII file that will allow me to disable the [ ]Custom Paste Mask Shrink
option? In the meantime I will be merrily disabling each and every [ ]Custom Paste Mask Shrink
option one at a time.
By the way, a while back you mentioned you might add a tool that would allow us to re-attach all patterns in a given library (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=13255&start=33
). Is that still a possiblility for version 4
